    Remastering an Anime Classic – AKIRA and Blu-Ray

    I hated the new voice-overs when they remastered it for DVD. The original english script was already really good. Doubt I'll be buying this again in Blu-ray.

    HDMI Cable for my HTPC build....

    "Deep Color" (48-bit color) is part of the HDMI 1.3 standard and the 10.2GBps link should be capable of 1080p @ 120Hz, though nothing broadcasts at this rate today. If you purchase a 1.3 compliant cable, any 1.3 compliant cable, you should be good to go. Don't worry about any extra things...

    BlackBerry 8900 - Curve replacement

    I got to play with this phone a few weeks back. What an amazing device - perfect size, full keyboard, amazing screen (actually better resolution than the BOLD in a smaller screen). The lack of 3G really makes me a sad panda, since I do use the BOLD to tether from time-to-time and the...

    Hands On: Got my Blackberry Bold (9000)

    Provided your GPS isn't locked out by the provider, I find that it's faster to lock on the satellites via the GPS menu in Setup as opposed to using BB Maps. I would avoid BB Maps entirely and use Google Maps. The only problem with Google Maps is it can't manipulate the GPS hardware at all (you...

    Apple Sues School For Using An Apple Logo

    Don't mistaken charity for strategic positioning. I would be willing to place money on the fact that MS gives away their products to schools (and offer deep discounts to students) in the hopes that as the graduates enter the work force and enter decision making roles, they select their product...

    Blackberry Thunder/Touchscreen

    Yeah I hear ya Mr. W. No 3G on the Javelin is a deal breaker for me. No 3G on the new Pearl 8220 either. I wonder what RIM is thinking?

    What phone do you have?

    I have no special connections or anything, it's been out in Canada for several weeks. Quite possibly the only thing we get in Canada before the US does... Overall I'm very happy with the phone. Here's a list of pros and cons from my perspective: Pros: - The screen. Wow. With the...

    Nero 8 Ultra questions... who's using this? Are you happy?

    I have Nero 8 Ultra on Vista 64. It works I guess. Never tried Lightscribe even though my drives support it. Actually, only reason I bought it was because none of my burning software from XP worked on Vista64. But I primarily only use it for data backup.

    Using driving games to learn manual transmission?

    Hand brake is used to specifically classify the emergency/park brakes that are hand pulled. I think emergency step brakes are only found in trucks and vans. Unfortunately the step brake can't be used in the same way a hand brake can to prevent rolling during start up on a hill. Not that it...

    Using driving games to learn manual transmission?

    There was a time in North America when manual was mandatory for getting your operator's license. They should've never changed it, since you're right, if you can drive manual, you can drive auto, but not vice-versa. You can always use the hand brake trick on a hill. Riding your friction point...

    Is a Tablet PC a good solution for art and painting?

    Make sure you pick up a convertible tablet. Outside of drawing, you would really miss the keyboard.

    Question for European members about GPS units

    If you have a GPS-enabled smartphone and a half-decent data plan you can use something like Mapquest Navigator. It's a server-based navigation system. You won't need to worry about downloading and keeping maps up-to-date as they are pulled from the server real time. The down-side is that it...
